The Los Angeles Clippers reportedly are circling guard Lou Williams in trade discussions.

Los Angeles reportedly has its eye on the Dallas Mavericks’ first-round draft pick at No. 18.

Williams has been a staple off the Clippers’ bench since the 2017-18 season.

The 34-year-old is a three-time Sixth Man of the Year Award winner and is arguably the NBA’s best bench scorer.

Williams has been fantastic in his three seasons with the Clippers, as he has averaged 20.4 points and 5.4 assists per game.

Last season, Williams appeared in 65 games in the regular season and averaged 18.2 points per game.

While his numbers did drop a little from the season before, it occurred because of the additions of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to the roster.

While Los Angeles may try to change its roster after last season’s second-round playoff exit, it would be surprising to see it deal Williams.
